Italian style furniture

During the 15th century in Italy there arose great renewed interest in the heritage of the antique architecture, sculpture, furniture and other fine arts of ancient Rome, called the European renaissance. This revival of classicism in the italian furniture occured principally between the years 1400 and 1650. 18th - early 19th century Renaissance took its rise in Italy where the Grecian ornament had influenced Roman and early Italian furniture.
